In this post, I wanted to briefly go over the major differences between the Boox Note Air 2 and the Boox Note Air 2 Plus.
In essence, the Note Air 2 Plus is a minor update for the Note Air 2 – the hardware specs are virtually the same except that the Note Air 2 Plus comes with a bigger battery (3700mAh instead of 3000mAh). Although this means you will get a bit more battery life out of the Note Air 2 Plus, it also means that the tablet is a bit heavier (445g rather than 420g).
It is also worth noting that the Note Air 2 Plus supports a magnetic case which the Note Air 2 doesn’t. In addition, the Note Air 2 has a blue casing, and the Note Air 2 Plus is dark green.
Both models have 4Gb of RAM; however, earlier versions of the Note Air 2 were shipped with 3Gb of RAM, so if you are buying second-hand, it might be worth checking this.
Both tablets retail at $499.99. However, at the time of writing, the Boox shop was running a sale where $20 was knocked off the price of the Note Air 2 Plus ($479.99), but the Note Air 2 was discounted by a whopping $50 ($449.99). This could suggest that Boox are more eager to shift their stocks of the Note Air 2 than the Note Air 2 Plus.
I’ve summarised the differences in the table below:
|Spec||Note Air 2||Note Air 2 Plus|
|Magnetic Case Support?||No||Yes|
